A cinematic period tale of indigenous outlaw John Kepe (Ezra Mabengeza), Sew the Winter to My Skin explores the story of the Robin Hood legend and stock thief who, from the 1920s to the 1950s, is said to have stolen livestock and supplies from rich white people and given to the poor, indigenous people of the Karoo.

The film, a South African Western-style epic, is set in a time when apartheid was being written into law and Afrikaner nationalism was rising.
